LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The election is already decided, but the last of Tippecanoe County's ballots have only been counted Friday.
The election board finished reviewing provisional ballots accepting only 33 of 154.
Most of those accepted were filled out by voters whose machines weren't functioning properly.
But of those rejected, the vast majority were over registration issues, and many were Purdue students.
Clerk Christa Coffey fears those students may have been misinformed on campus.
"There was some word that was not correctly distributed on Purdue's campus that you could vote anywhere in the state for the Federal races, and that's not true," said Coffey. "If you're registered in Hamilton County, you still have to vote in Hamilton County, and we had a lot of students who, I think, were given some wrong information, showed up to vote, and we were unable to count their ballot."
The 33 accepted ballots didn't change any of the race results.
Final voter turnout was about 47 percent.
